She is one of Nova Scotia’s most respected musicians and her timeless music will stop you in your tracks. She is Erin Costelo and her latest album Down Below, The Status Quo is set for release on March 25.
Down Below, The Status Quo has been described as “a reflection of her (and our) complicated world, expressed through a voice unlike any other in Canada”.
The album was made at Joel Plaskett’s New Scotland Yard studio in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia with engineer Thomas Stajcer. Costelo’s fabulous band consists of guitarist Clive MacNutt, bassist Ian Bennett, drummers Dave Marsh and Matt Gallant, along with the Blue Engine String Quartet and horns supplied by Matt Myer, Andrew Jackson and Andrew MacKelvie.
